Lao PDR Doubles Down on Malnutrition to Achieve SDGs

On Feb 21, Deputy Prime Minister and Chair of the National Nutrition Committee Kikeo Khaykhamphithoune chaired the Eighth National Nutrition Forum, a flagship annual event for nutrition in the country.

Following last year’s forum, which highlighted the inextricable link between investments in nutrition and the growth of children, communities and the economy, the theme for this year’s forum is “Nutrition for Sustainable Development”, which highlights the importance of nutrition in achieving both the Government’s targets for socio-economic development and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
